Matt Vasgersian's not a racist, he's just not funny

If you haven't seen this clip yet, it includes the MLB Network's Matt Vasgersian making a bad joke at the wrong time -- when Colorado Rockies right fielder Brad Hawpe is about to be carted off the field with an apparent neck injury.

There's nothing racist about the joke; it just wasn't funny -- that guy doesn't look like Donovan McNabb. Vasgersian certainly made a poor decision to go with a joke at that exact moment, but it really should have been a non-issue. But apparently, Vasgersian was forced to issue an on-air apology to say that he was sorry for ever making the joke in the first place.

Hopefully it's all over with now though. And if you're curious, Jason Whitlock has weighed in on the matter in his own unique way.
